Wot, Wot?! Could it be another epic Redwall tale (tail?) thick with high adventure, heavy accents, and leek-and-turnip pasty from the beloved beast master himself, Brian Jacques? It is indeed, happy readers.Triss, the 15th book in the distinguished and wildly popular animal fantasy series, chronicles the exploits of a brave squirrel maid who travels from the bonds of slavery to the meeting of her destiny as a warrior at Redwall Abbey. Triss the squirrel, Shogg the otter, and Welfo the hedgehog, all slaves to the bloodthirsty royal ferret family of Riftgard, filch a ferret boat and sail away from the murderous clutches of Princess Kurda and her malevolent father, King Agarnu. Swearing revenge, Kurda sets out to recapture her slaves, her evil Ratguard troops reinforced by the pirate fox Plugg Firetail and his band of criminal Freebooters. At the same time, the badger Sagaxus and his bosom friend Bescarum the hare also set sail from Salamanstrom, to seek adventure on the high seas. Meanwhile, back at the abbey, the Redwall inhabitants are being plagued by a mystery that involves a hidden door, a secret code, and three stinking, sinister snake siblings that are picking off the gentle forest folk one by one. Any ardent fan of Redwall knows that what comes next will include sword fights, feasting, raucous good humor, and a thrilling climax. Jacques's fervent followers are rewarded with the author's usual swashbuckling good storytelling, while the newly initiated will read with wide eyes, and quickly go back to hungrily devour the rest of the series.

superb These books are mostly about rodents fighting each other for conquest or freedom using primitive or otherwise medieval weapons. Great humor, delicious feasting. Recommended for all ages.WOW!! This book is a great book that includes multiple storylines. The story starts out with Triss, Welfo, and Shogg, three slaves who escape from the royal pure ferret's island. Meanwhile at Salamandastron, Sagax, a badger prince, and Scarum, a gluttonous hare, are tired of being cooped up and decide to go on an adventure with Kroova, the otter. On the ferret island Freebooters have arrived. The pure ferret king, Agarnu, comes to an agreement with them resulting in the Freeebooters and Kurda going to capture the escaped slaves and take over Redwall Abbey. In the abbey two abbeybabes, Ruggum and Bikkle, turn up missing and are later found by the ancient Brockhall. They are terrified out of their heads about a three-headed monster inside the once-great city. Can the Abbey fight off the invading horde of vermin and destroy whatever is hiding in the dark depths of Brockhall? This book has amazing amounts of details. And with a great blend of storytelling, dialogue, word choice, and songs, I couldn't put it down. You should definitely pick this up.Triss sucks!!! I thought Triss wasn't that good. It's about a little mouse named Triss. where I started they were saving the princess. they have to save redwall. It's really stupid. It's really dumb and confusing.
